How fun would it be to throw a bridal henna party! Have an artist give you and all your bridesmaids matching or mismatching henna tattoos while you get ready for the wedding! They even offer henna in white and it is just a one-day application and washes off after. Look how beautiful and romantic the white henna is:
Here is some information about henna:
Henna Art (Mehndi) is a safe, natural way to beautify your skin and is temporary. It will last 1-3 weeks normally with proper post care.

We cannot wait for Hillary & Aaron's wedding weekend, here is a sneak peak! Caribbean Catering, Blue Water Weddings and John Rudolph Designs will be creating a very unique and beautiful wedding this weekend. Hillary and Aaron of Chicago are having the wedding of their dreams this Friday. Hillary was inspired by the inside/outside feel of a lavish dining atmosphere under the stars for her destination wedding here in the Florida Keys. We will create a sophisticated experience with romantic draping, soft lighting surrounded by a shimmer of rose gold. Hanging florals and crystal chandeliers will evoke the royalty of an English Garden ambiance. The simple elegance and romance of this design will be a show stopper. Check out these inspirations boards and stay tuned to see the real thing:
A Silent disco is an interesting new wedding trend that we have spotted on the horizon. It is perfect for an after party for those party-all-nighters out there! Our local noise ordinance means that all amplified music must be shut down at 11PM. The perfect time to start your silent disco party without disturbing the neighbors. I can't wait for our first silent disco wedding! Here's some information I found from a company called Silent Storm that provides silent disco service:
"Silent disco weddings are the perfect solution for entertaining all of your guests on your special day. Here are a few reasons why:
- Don’t cut your celebration short because of amplified music curfews. Continue celebrating late into the night without disturbing anyone nearby.
- Provide guests with a choice. Not everyone has the same taste in music; some like Top 40, some enjoy electronic music. Some like it loud, others may have sensitive hearing. With our 2 or 3-channel silent disco headphone models, your guests are enabled to switch between music channels with a flick of the switch. And with a personal volume dial on each headphone, your grandparents can enjoy a mellow dance to Django Reinhardt while your friends break it down to their favorite party jam on the other channel — all while staying together on the same dance floor.
- Encourage conversation and connection. No one enjoys yelling over loud speakers. Guests can remove their headphones and enjoy catching up with family and friends without losing their voices or hearing. And there’s no better conversation piece than a full dance floor of people dancing and singing to what appears to be silence!"

For a long while round tables have been the top choice for brides. Round tables are great - they create an intimate atmosphere where everyone at the table can chat and no one feels left out. But it's always good to think about your design options and not to blindly follow suit of those that have gone before you. What we have been seeing a lot of lately are Long tables. They are the new wedding table of choice!
We love them for lots of reasons. Of course they look amazing and they also make the table plan easier because groups can be merged along the table without having group or separate people. Plus, if you have a miscount you might be able to squeeze a few extra seats in!
Flowers, candles, lanterns and runners look amazing on long tables - the symmetry of their arrangement on a long table creates a fantastic visual effect. The long tables really have an old world romantic look to them.
